Berättande

The cup-marked stone with 114 cup marks (this is among the richest stones in cup marks in Latvia). Almost all cup marks are of the traditional spheric shape, absolutely round when viewed in a plan, with the exception of one cup mark which is oval and seldom seen in the cup-marked stones of Latvia. Regarding the purpose of creating cup-marked stones scholars have suggested more than 30 different versions the most likely of which are connected with cult rituals which have taken place at such stones.
